Reviews

Reviewer: Dear Mr. Fantasy - - August 12, 2011
Subject: Nice sounding show.
This show will fit on two 80 minute discs, eliminate track 11 on the first disc and add the first three tracks from set two at the end of disc one. Then just add the tracks from disc three onto disc two. Enjoy!!!

Subject: Stranger danger
What we have here is actually a fine version of Stranger (although it sounds like Mickey has the wrong tempo in mind for the intro--Billy saves the day!) but it's the first set closer from the previous night, not this show.

On to the review. This is a solid recording (watch for the Phil bombs!) and a lively performance. For '85, Jerry's voice is pretty strong and he plays very well. Althea, Bird Song, and LL Rain all point toward the excellence to come in set II, the whole of which is worth a listen. This show closed the East Coast leg of Fall '85 and feels like a mighty good celebration. One more two and a half hour reason why I love '85.

Subject: Fun and some luck....
My good buddy Tony and I went to 11-10 and were dropped off in the meadowlands parking lot by our buds who went back to Mystic. We had a bag of raw chicken, 2 forged tickets from the previous nights gate crashing incident where we erased the 0 and place a 1 in its spot, and no ride home. We later found a cookout and a guy with a pickup truck with a cap from connecticut who gave us a ride to our doors in Groton. What a great guy..we partied with his friends for much of the day. ahhh the good ol' days of parking lots... As for the show....I really liked Meadowlands shows...good sounding arena...check out the Scarlet>Fire, Estimated>Eyes.. and of course the brokedown...all great...this show smokes.

Subject: Great!
Just finished listening at work. Man does the time fly with a great show! Great crowd and a typical setlist from '85. "Walking the DOg" was funky and "Throwing Stones" was on fire, maybe because we just had elections but it was a good listen, as always.

Recording was very good, a few minor blips but nothing to make you pound the table

Subject: Whew!!!!!
snappy and 'in your face' recording that takes one back to the show. Listening to this, makes one feel as the band is still with us.

Just a terrific recording. Kudos to the folks who bring us this latest gem.
